YUÈ by The Westin Kuala Lumpur

Mid Autumn Festival is fast approaching and the most popular delicacy will certainly be mooncake. Round as a moon (get it?). Is it only me but I actually rate Mid Autumn Festival more than Chinese New Year, maybe because of the less hectic run-up to the day and also playing with lanterns and candles are much “prettier” than giving out Angpow. LOL

As with the nature of most celebrations, it will evolved over time. The variety of mooncake we had today are a lot better than our mom and pop times. Nowadays, there is also a healthy competition among sellers on the packaging of the mooncake. No doubt one of the innovative one is from The Westin Kuala Lumpur where it incorporate Bluetooth speakers in the lovely packaging itself. What a good way to play your favourite tunes while savouring the delicious mooncake.

 

YUÈ Mooncake Gift Box, YUÈ refers to the phonetic symbols for moon( 月), music (乐) and delight (悦).

 

Designed with the concept of reminiscing old times, the elegant YUÈ Mooncake Gift Box is presented in 2 distinctive traditional outlooks – lovely floral and royal blue with printed motif. It is indeed an unique and bespoke gift boxes make perfect gifts during this euphonic season of love and laughter.

 

The multi-functional gift box holds a set of 4 mooncakes (baked skin or mini snow skin) and comes incorporated with a set of Bluetooth speaker, one can play their preferred tracks as they relish on the exquisite Westin mooncakes. The box is also good to use as jewellery or keepsake box.

 

Thanks to the recent invitation from The Westin KL, we managed to sample their mooncake selection this year.

Featuring 7 delightful varieties of traditional baked skin mooncakes and the special Mini Snow Skin Pure Musang King, diners can expect the very best of flavors from these mooncakes.

 

We were serenaded Guzheng performance during the session as well as the presentation of the art of playing Diabolo or Chinese Yo-Yo (扯铃).

 

Mini Snow Skin Pure Musang King 迷你纯猫三王冰皮

Definitely love at first bite! Packed with rich, creamy Musang King durian pulp and its unmistakably pungent aroma, as a die-hard durian fan, I can’t resist this heavenly treat. The skin is sublime too, soft and melts with a creamy sensation. Being the premium grade of durian, one can savor 100% Musang King as they bite into this delectable delicacy.

The jet-black bamboo charcoal mooncake was great at sight as well as delicious in taste. Encasing a delicate paste filling made from dried longan, dried wolfberry and lotus seeds. I like it not too sweet with pleasant fruity note, there are even dried longan bits in it.

 

Five Sen5ens Supreme Mixed Nuts 中国元素伍仁月饼

This supreme mixed nuts mooncake is screaming for attention too. Jam-packed with numerous of nuts and ingredients such as melon kernel seeds, whole shell almonds, walnuts, grilled chicken meat, chicken floss, white sesame seeds, dried scallops, seafood sauce as well as scallop & chicken Sauce. It is also imbued with the appetizing tanginess and delicate fragrance of dried Mandarin Orange and fresh lime leaf. One can get a wondrously aromatic of nutty and savoriness meaty ingredients, this one’s a definite keeper.
